NeNe Leakes leaving ‘Atlanta’?

    Rumor has it that NeNe Leakes may not be sticking around on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" much longer.

    According to Star Magazine, when Bravo announced that Kim Zolciak got her spin-off, "Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding," NeNe saw red.

    “She’s furious that Kim got her own show and she didn’t," a source told the tabloid, adding that NeNe’s got at least one other gripe about the network: “She’s saying she’s too big for ‘RHOA,’ and Bravo doesn’t pay her enough.”

    NeNe has long prided herself on being the "realest" housewife and self-proclaimed star of the series. Supposedly, Kim’s show has prompted NeNe to start thinking up a couple of requirements that would need to be satisfied if Bravo wants her onboard for more episodes of "RHOA."

    “NeNe has told friends if she doesn’t get what she wants, she will quit!" the insider said. "She thinks she’s Madonna.”

    There’s gossip that during her most recent appearance on "Watch What Happens Live," NeNe made some divalicious demands: A stretch limo, a presidential suite at her hotel and an expensive make-up artist. Reportedly, her requests were denied and she wasn’t quiet about expressing her disappointment.

    “She acted nice to host Andy Cohen while shooting but laid into him afterward and said she wants her own show," the source claimed.

    While NeNe has yet to comment on the gossip, this doesn’t bode well for any other things she might want in exchange for renewing her contract.
